Bend and Snap: Justice Kennedy's Education in China

Justice Anthony Kennedy, in a presentation to the Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference on August 19, 2010, spoke of his experiences teaching in China.  After observing that law is an undergraduate study in much of the world, Kennedy noted that China opened a graduate law school only a few years ago (1:07:07-1:11:21, in the C-SPAN video linked below). 

Applicants were asked what inspired them to pursue studies at the new law school.  Many mentioned a particular movie in English, which piqued the Justice’s interest (1:09:52-1:11:21).
